I just visited a blog called Beam Me On and saw a very similar post from Valentine's day.  I know I have visited her blog several times since Feb 14th and never watched the video.  She must have inspired me with her post.  Either way, I hope that this brings you smiles and that Beam Me On continues send me good stuff subliminally.

Spicy,
I had a feeling you would like it. Glad it put a smile on your face.

Olzen,

Thanks for the twitting.

Karin,
It's nice to see you again. I just started following today. You have very creative work.

Dragonsongbird,
It has the elements you appreciate love, loss, redemption, societal obligation and a poetic idealistic passion...all the good stuff.
